hearings on benghazi. today marked by heated exchanges over who is responsible for the obama administration's all statements about what happened in benghazi and why. all statements were made by the white house, and ambassador susan rice come over a two-week period. catherine herridge learned today that neither the director of national intelligence, nor the acting cia director, was responsible for repairing preparing a report that partially blamed the benghazi attack on amateurish youtube anti-islam video. they claim the president obama pressed upon the american people and upon the united nations general assembly. he was push hard to explain what caused them to push the youtube video three days after that attack. the chief said simply he was not at the betray -- petraeus briefing and had nothing to say. there was demonstrable and incurable evidence of their involvement and no evidence of anything other than a terrorist attack. and the administration continued to press its false tale, despite fox news reporting and they reported within 24 hours, u.s. intelligence agencies monomania that the a
in benghazi on 9-11. as you may know, the obama administration will not define exactly what happened. the press has been largely negligent in pursuing the story. now the testimony is under oath, so it's serious. there are two ways this thing could go. first, into a watergate type spectacle with cover-ups and goh gus statements to the american people, or second. >> it could be a big nothing. a human error that spiraled out of control. the problem is compounded by the president's refusal to define anything. he continues to say there is an investigation, so he can't even give us basic facts like when prosecute you told, mr. president, about the attack in benghazi? an answer to that question cannot possibly impact any investigation, nevertheless, mr. obama refuses to provide it. that raised all kinds of conspiraciy theories and now you have the petraeus situation added to the mix. at a press conference today, reporter asked senator john mccain if the fact that general petraeus' mistress kept secret documents in her possession was it more serious than the entire libyan debauchle? >> well,

the obama administration from defending doma to arguing that it's unconstitutional has recommended to the court that it grants cert in the winter case. there are two cases. a lot of petitions have been filed. there only two cases in which there has been a court of appeals opinion. the windsor case in the second circuit and the gill case from the first circuit. i think the lindsay cases the more likely one in part because the justice department has recommended that. so i really think that case is going to be -- that case is going to be heard. i would be extremely surprised if the supreme court does not grant review in that case and we do not get a decision on the constitutionality of doma. the other cases, the famous case which chad knows a little bit about is the prop 8 case from california. that is where, from a ninth circuit appeals decision, which by a 2-1 vote, struck down prop 8 from the supreme court, the impact will be to affirm the ninth circuit opinion and will be unconstitutional. i think it's a big question with what the court is going to do. there are demons made to the

2011 through today, there had been more medical marijuana dispensaries busted under the obama administration than in eight years of george bush's administration. >> why? >> i think the reason why this happened is for triangulation. that obama was not going to go into this presidency, going to this election, with his opponents hanging him out to try as allowing marijuana to become legal on his watch. >> reporter: 18 states and d.c. have medical marijuana laws now. because the law in d.c. has not yet been fully i want accomplishmented by the -- implemented by the city. leading to a potentially interesting consequence. >> if the cultivators are not able to sell their product to the dispensaries waiting for them to open. that means the product they have is going to eventually go up in price. we could possibly end up with the case where the medical marijuana from the dispensaries would be more expensive than what these individuals could find it on the street. >> reporter: matt owns guardian resources of washington. his e-mail address is at growd.c..com. >> i think d.c. really dropp
was re-elected, and the obama administration had a number of, i think, foreign policy and counterterrorism successes in the first administration. obviously, bin laden was killed in the special operations raid. president obama oversaw the drawdown of troops in iran as well as afghanistan and, yet, i think the lasting legacy from the first term of the obama administration may well be what u.s. officials term the yemen model, how it is that the u.s. is going to fight these wars, these wars against non-state actors, groups against al-qaeda in the future, and in many ways, i think, that during the first term of the obama presidency yemen had become the laboratory for this approach. yemen is now a place over the past four years where the u.s. tested out ways in which it could fight al-qaeda. there's a number of approaches and the obama administration moved away from what the bush administration tempted to do with large ground scale invasions of iraq and afghanistan, and i think everybody who spends any time in yemen would agree that any sort of a boots on the ground approach
